Pick Your Poison: Monday 10-17-16

Congratulations to Bob Dylan on winning the Nobel Prize for Literature. I’ve long maintained the Dylan is one of, if not the greatest songwriter of all time. His lyrics are the purest form of poetry and continue to have great meaning many decades later. The man has been responsible for entire movements, though he may never acknowledge it himself. Which is why I guess the Nobel Prize committee had to do it for him. Now they’re reportedly having trouble reaching him, or at least he’s not responding to their calls. Given his history with subversion and general attitude of doing whatever he wants, I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t show up to claim the award. The party will go on, with or without him. Either way, it’s great to see Dylan get this extremely prestigious recognition. Perhaps one of the artists in today’s Pick Your Poison will be the next Dylan and win all the awards someday. You’ll never know until you give them a try. That said, don’t miss downloads in this set from The Burgeoning, Kitty, Tallisker and Ty Richards. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from The Blow, Cloud Nothings, Connor Pearson, Lou Barlow, Lower Plenty, Michael Chapman, Michael Mayer & Joe Goddard, Miniature Tigers, Slothtrust, Stef Chura and more.

Pick Your Poison: Monday 9-26-16

Believe it or not, I’ve got a life outside of this site. Unfortunately, it sometimes gets in the way of my ability to actually compose posts for you, wonderful reader. This week, for the first time in five years, I’m moving. Rest assured that I’m not going far, unless you consider a few blocks to be far. But with that transition comes packing and sorting and unpacking and the general uprooting of your entire life. So for the next week or two the posts might be extra short and a little more intermittent than usual while I sort this whole thing out. Please bear with me, I’d appreciate it! Now then, let’s jump into today’s Pick Your Poison. Don’t miss downloads in this set from Blake Rainey & His Demons, K V A S I R, M. Lockwood Porter and Sofia Hartig.

Pick Your Poison: Monday 9-19-16

Oof. Sometimes you make a mistake. Not like a minor spelling error sort of mistake or a major life-altering sort of mistake, but one that impacts you for a brief period of time. Like this past weekend, for example, in which I attended two full days of Riot Fest, followed by an aftershow on Sunday night that went until well past 2AM despite needing to get up a few hours later for that fun thing known as a job. Riding the struggle bus all day today, and really just want to crawl back into bed for a good 3-4 hour nap. Instead, let’s talk Pick Your Poison. Some great tracks up for download from Crushed Out, Husky Rescue, Jenny Hval and Mylko. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Beach Slang (covering Japandroids), Damaged Bug, Dillon Francis (ft. Will Heard), The Dodos (covering American Football), Fraternal Twin, Fujiya & Miyagi, Joyce Manor, Katie Gately, Miniature Tigers, Nick Waterhouse (covering Sade), Warehouse and more.
